CEDAR PARK, Texas — Greg Kelley is officially a Longhorn after being exonerated on child sex assault charges.
Six years ago, Kelley, a then 18-year-old Leander resident, was accused of sexually assaulting a boy. The state's highest criminal court has overturned his conviction, marking the end of a long and controversial case.
In a video posted to Facebook, Kelley is seen in a car, logging into the UT website to check on his application status.
Once the web page loads, Kelley can be heard saying the words, "You are admitted to the University of Texas," before he bursts into celebration.
"I'm a Longhorn, baby!" he shouts as he holds up his hand for a "Hook 'em, Horns" gesture. "Texas fights! Woo!"
In the video, Kelley held his phone screen up to the video, which showed a message from UT Austin.
“You are admitted to the Exercise Science major in the College of Education, where you may begin your studies effective Spring 2020," the message said.
